    It doesn,t matter what coast he's talking about.Bev Morgan never owned any New England Divers.They started on the east coast then went to the west coast in the 70,s.

    When I first started diving, I didn’t have the option to dive locally and had many months of waiting in between dive opportunities. Your videos were the first thing I used to learn about diving, and they taught me so much. I know I’m much more knowledgeable and a better diver for it, so thanks for taking the time to make the videos and putting up with the jerks who come around.

    You seem to have a penchant for windmills.

    I'm pretty sure it is two different operations. The New England Divers in California has been around since 1951, three years before the east coast store.

    Why would a dive shop In Ca. be called New England Divers?
    I would think that the original was in NE and then opened a 2nd shop in CA.
    Just sounds logical.

    Correct.If you google n.e.divers long beach they say since 1951.They are mistaken or lying.Jim Started it in 1952 in Beverly.MA.You have some common sense.Others don,t seem to have any.After they sold in 1970.Stores in Ca,Wa,and Fl opened.

    Because we’ve all just met Cousteua’s nephew. Clearly the smartest human in the universe and too lazy to post a link! Ending a sentence with LOL tells me all I need to know.
